When I moved from XP-Pro to Windows 7-Pro, I also moved from 32-bit OS to
64-Bit OS. I still have my old XP system, because Nikon stopped updating its
scanner software for my Coolscan V. I have a workaround, and I can buy new
software from a different vendor for about $300. But as long as that old XP
system is running, I see no need to fork out my meager funds for new
software. Like another poster said, I do not have it hooked to the Internet;
although, I keep my anti-virus software up-to-date because it is connected
to my home network via a hard-wire link. (The wireless is way too slow.)

Thanks to all who answered me here and privately.

I've gone ahead and purchased a new 1 terrabyte HD and a legal copy of
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (just over a hundred bucks or so) for my home
platform and will use the existing internal HD as my new backup drive.

Because the the laptop is used so infrequently, it will remain as is for the
time being. All due diligence will be observed with it, however (regarding
anti-virus software, antispyware software, a decent firewall, etc), until a
final decision is made to leave it as-is or change to W7.
